How to Create Self-Reported Demographics in Pulse

Have you ever wanted to track a demographic as as one-time occurrence for a Pulse Survey? Or give your employees an option to self-identify as a certain demographic?

You can give your employees the opportunity to self-report a demographic by creating a "Demographic question" in Pulse Survey.  Adding a demographic question to a Pulse allows your survey takers to identify themselves as belonging to groups that you aren't already tracking. You can then slice and filter your data by their responses. 

You can add demographic questions to any Pulse Survey template. From within your template, click New Question and select the Demographic question type. Under Question Text, enter the question you would like your survey takers to answer. Under Analytics Label, add the name of the "demographic" you are asking so that you are better able to track responses to this question when viewing results. Fill out the responses to this question your survey takers should choose from under Choices.

After you launch a Pulse using a template with demographic questions, you'll be able to slice your data by this demographic in Analytics (just as you can for any demographics data that lives in Quantum Workplace).


Please Note:  The data you collect here will not be added to a user's profile or be visible outside of any Pulse Surveys that include this question. We recommend that you update your employees' demographics within Quantum Workplace to include any demographics you may want to track in the future.
